Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

 Welcome bloggers!  Another Wednesday card giveaway is upon us!  Fire and Ice for today's offering.  I started with a piece of coconut white card and used the Stockholm die decorative insert to cut a shape out of the top of my card (I didn't use the outside cutting edge with it).  I applied a piece of self adhesive sticky sheet to the front of the card, covering all of it.  I turned the card over and from the back, I gilded the open areas with Summer Meadow gilding flakes.  I used a Rubit Scrubit pad to lightly refine the flakes and remove the excess.  Trim the card to size before removing the backing paper on the front as you will surely pick up a bit of the gilding flakes around the edge.  Peel the backing paper off, then coat with Iced Snow.  Cut two of the Scandinavian Borders out of coconut white card and glue them to the lower portion of the card on top of each other.  Leave the edges loose and push upwards for a ruffly look.  Tie a messy bow out of white seam binding and add in the centre of the border with a glue dot.  Using a Dazzler setting, add Glossy Accents to the bezel, then sprinkle with Gilding flakes.  Use a pokey tool to mix them into the Glossy Accents.  Allow to dry overnight then repeat to make it fuller looking before adding it to the centre of your bow.  Add a pearl strip to the centre of the border on either side.  To complete the focal element, stamp your sentiment in Clear Perfect Medium and emboss with Ancient Copper embossing powder.  Cut it out with the smaller die from the Copenhagen die set, then mat it with the Stockholm die, also cut out of coconut white card.  Add some white flatback pearls in various sizes to embellish your creation.  Finally, add a white paper pierced mat followed by a slightly larger white mat.  The finished dimensions are  6 1/2" x  7 3/4" in size.  If you would like to be included in the drawing to win this card, just eave me a comment and check back on Saturday's post for the winner to be announced.  All for now, Sue x

Hi, Sue...I hope you are feeling better today? The card is lovely, and sounds easier than it looks. I suspect I won't be doing any crafting for a day or two....I got a new puppy yesterday, a tiny ten-week-old scrap, as yet unnamed, who is currently hanging off the corner of my laptop! He wants to help with EVERYTHING!!! I may get him to help with perforating the edges of the card! :D Got to's playtime!! Jo xx

Its that fire and ice again lol... The ice I adore and have the large pot sitting on my shelf in my den, how it sparkles when the sun catches it, its my all time favourite bling. Im sure I remember this card from your last show, I know you showed us how to make the guided setting, may have to play with that idea myself. Such a beautiful card today Sue. Good luck to all.
Its frosty but sooo sunny here in Lancs, I see my birthplace (Midlands) is also frosty this morning.
I see a 10wk pup running round covered in flakes and ice snow today lol, nothing will be safe now you have a curious puppy around (keep all your valuable craft goodies up high and out of pups way before you find your fav card all chewed up and dies missing) lol good luck with the new 4 paws.
Welcome to ALL new Particraft visitor's so nice to see you, congrats Sue for reaching your new goal.
To TOB, SAM and ALISON and to those not feeling well I send my love and warm gentle hugs to you.
SHEILA you are in my thoughts.
To all our missing long standing Wilsonettes especially CAM, we really miss you and look forward to the day you come 'home' again.

Love n hugs.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
Fire and Ice is appropriate for this morning as it's very cold outside but nice and warm here in my living room. lol.
Today's gift is so sparkly and with the added fire of gilding flakes makes everyone smile. I have not as yet seen your strips of pearls but have now received my order of pearl corners along with your fantastic efolder of Scored Lines.
I'm sorry you're not feeling too good but hoping that another day's rest will help. The bug that's doing the rounds is a real sticker and it seems that it has to have it's time before moving on.

Have to finish off a card which is needed to be delivered this afternoon so shall have to get a wriggle on.
To all in pain and under the weather I hope your day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Beautiful card today. I love your fire and ice technique.
I'm really sorry that I haven't been around for almost a week, but I have been so poorly. I've had a terrible bout of either food poisoning oR Norovirus. It started latfriday morning at 2am and just couldn't stop being sick for 18 hours! Since then, I just haven't had the energy to get out of bed or even look at my iPad ( which is extremely unusual for me!) finally, today, I feel ok so now need to catch up on your creations and everyone's comments. I have lost nearly a stone though! My aunt has done quite well in hospital and they have drained her lung so at least she can breathe without pain. I'm hoping to get in to see her today as I've been clear of nasty symptons for 48 hours. I hope everyone is ok - I'm sorry if Friends have been poorly or anything, I will try to catch up I promise! Sue, I gather from comments this morning that you haven't been well yourself, so I really do hope that you are on the road to recovery. Sending love and hugs to all you lovely people, Alison xxxx

Gail said...

Good morning Sue,
What a beautiful card, I love it!
Can I just ask everyone if they are having the same problems as me, I am having to prove I'm not a robot everytime I log on.and if I take too long in leaving my comment I have to prove it twice.
Also with Google I have to log on for that every time, what has changed?
Taken too long I have to prove I'm not a robot a third time!
As much as I love sue and her blog I'm begining to think I'm not going to bother to comment
Sorry about the whinge!

Thank you so much

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue. WOW WOW WOW this is a stunning card. It ticks all my boxes. Love the fire and ice technique as it gives you the bling card you are after. I had some bits of guilding flakes from a couple of different pots so i make some of your dazzler settings and they are fantastic something totally different for what they were make for but it carries on with the bling. Thank you for another great card which i will be having a try later today. Hope you are feeling much better today.
Take care everyone as it's very cold and frosty but the sun is shining so hopefully the temprature will get a little higher.
Best Wishes.

Hi Sue, and all the ladies.

You will not believe it but I have made an almost identical card for an 85th birthday! I think your's may have the edge though lol.
Gail, I just ignore the "prove you're not a robot" and just press publish your comment, and it works every time.
I go into this blog via the bloglovin and in the top R H corner there is a faint grey cross, click on that and it brings you straight into the image and comments. I hope this helps.
Love to all, Alimecca Alison, sorry to read you have been so poorly, I hope you get rid of that bug very soon, you must be ill if you couldn't be bothered with logging on.

Good Morning Sue & all the Wilsonettes! I hope you are all well & enjoying good weather, wherever you live? I was SO sorry to hear that you've been poorly, sue but I hope you are WELL ON THE MEND, NOW? Have you had this nasty flu bug? I had it a while back (whilst gong through an operation to have bladder stones removed & having to put up with them coming back, after only a few weeks!)& I it really made me feel ill, which is not like me! I hope that no-one has to suffer it! Well you have excelled yourself AGAIN, Sue with a beautiful card! I LOVE the Fire & Ice technique & will have to try it, although I am a little scared in case it goes wrong! I have bought QUITE A LOT of your dies, lately (especially the new ones, from the Weekender)& have made some classy cards! Please will you post, on your blog, how to make the butterfly from your latest set of dies (I can't remember which one, off the top of my head, at the moment!)? I would love to be able to achieve that! Well, I will have to leave you all, now! Take care! Best wishes, Mary Blight XXX

Morning Sue. Hope you are feeling better today. Gorgeous card with the fire and ice technique. Love the way you ruffled the border and used the gilding flakes for the dazzler. It must look spectacular in person. Thanks for the opportunity to win this beauty and hope you have a great day.

Good morning Sue, I do hope you are feeling better. I myself got a call yesterday that I have to have major surgery on April 6th. I am not looking forward to this as it has been just over a year now since I've had my last surgery. Keep me in your prayers. I just love all your cards! They are so lovely and always bring a smile to my face. Thanks, Gail

Gail c - just a suggestion - (always have to prove I'm not a robot and think it's a small price to pay) don't tick the robot box until you have finished leaving your comment then at least you'll only have to do it once!

Hi Sue. I love the fire and ice and there is certainly plenty of ice on this card - it is beautiful. I adore the Scandinavian border and recently used it in a similar manner but with a sliver of coloured card along the centre before placing individual pearls as I don't have the strips. It looked rather like a lovely garter.
I do hope you are improving daily and will soon be back to good health.
